Music Journalism - During visit


Communication to the general public about artists and their music used to be done very differently than it is today. Search for a range of magazines and fanzines in the exhibition and flip through the pages digitally. These were often very low budget and relatively easy to make, and with no internet, they were the only way some people found out about music and artists they liked. Read some of the articles and take note of other features included in the magazines and fanzines.


Watch a video of an interview on display in the exhibition. Take note of the following:
